Digital leaders across the three schools planned and took part in the world-wide Safer Internet Day 2019, at the BT centre on Tuesday 5th February. Their aim was to present interactive activities for peers and leaders of internet companies, to educate people about ways to give consent online. Each school planned and presented key messages. They also took part in a range of workshops led by Childnet and listened to key-note speakers; leaders from technology companies and MPs talk about the future of E-safety in the UK. They had a fantastic day and made an excellent contribution to the event.
Well done to our Digital Leaders who participated in the Safer Internet Day. They are at the top of the national leaderboard, thanks to completing their training and for earning 250 points for taking part in Safer Internet Day.
Our Digital Leaders have created a leaflet for parents about online safety. Click the link or collect a copy from the school office.
The Digital Leaders made a class safety poster for Key Stage 2 in their recent meeting. These are now proudly displayed in all Key Stage 2 classes to remind children about safe internet use.
